OTTAWA —A knee injury has ended Peng Peng Lees London Olympics dream. Antonio Brown Jersey . The gymnast from
Toronto suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee just over a
week ago while training in Regina before the Canadian championships, forcing her
out of the final Olympic selection event later this month. “I have spent a great
deal of time consulting with doctors and did a lot of soul searching to
determine what was best for me,” said Lee, who played a key role in helping
Canada qualify a five-woman team for the Games. “I do not want to rush into
doing gymnastics for the Olympics if my knee could be at a greater risk and
possibly affect me in the future.” Lee plans to attend UCLA on a gymnastics
scholarship in the fall. Lee will still travel to London as the womens teams
honorary captain. “Peng Peng brings to the team much more than her performances
on the floor,” said Lise Simard, program director for the womens team. “She is a
respected leader on our team and our athletes will continue to benefit from her
winning attitude, dynamic personality and crowd appeal.” The final Olympic
selection camp and competition will be held in Gatineau, Que., June 24-28.
Twelve gymnasts are vying for five spots on the Olympic team plus one reserve.
They are: Elisabeth Black of Halifax, Ottawas Talia Chiarelli, Jessica Dowling
and Jessica Savona of Oakville, Ont., Madeline Gardiner, Victoria Moors and
Mikaela Gerber of Cambridge, Ont., Dominique Pegg of Sarnia, Ont., Brittany
Rogers of Coquitlam, B.C., Briannah Tsang of Vancouver, Anysia Unick of Calgary
and Kristina Vaculik of Whitby, Ont. Jonathan Dwyer Jersey . Fernando Torres put
Chelsea ahead in the 40th minute, but the game turned after his teammate
Branislav Ivanovic was sent off just moments later. Three goals in 12 minutes
from Yaya Toure, Carlos Tevez and Samir Nasri put City firmly in control before
Ryan Bertrand scored a late second for Chelsea. Mike Wallace Authentic Jersey . Keep in mind,
Assat plays in SM-liiga, Finlands top professional league.   “I just thought he
was ready to play on our first line and we just needed to find the right center
to play alongside him,” Rautakallio, a former NHL All-Star with the
Atlanta/Calgary Flames, told NHL. http://www.pittsburghsteelersprostore.com/jack-butler-jersey
. And, more importantly, its full. On an otherwise ho-hum day of qualifying,
nine cars made the field on their first attempts, ending any potential
last-minute drama and assuring the May 27 race would start with a full field of
33 cars for 64th consecutive year. Antonio Brown Black Jersey . According to TSN
Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, Winnipeg Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff
has met with Kanes representatives from Newport Sports Management and dismissed
the rumours of Kanes unhappiness with the team. Donnie Shell Jersey . The Rangers are the top
seed in the East for the first time since they won their last Stanley Cup title
in 1994, but New York was forced to stave off elimination in Game 6.PITTSBURGH
—Jason Marquis pitched so poorly early in the season that he was released.
Things have changed quite a bit since then. The veteran right-hander took a
no-hitter into the seventh inning before settling for a two-hitter as the San
Diego Padres beat the Pirates 5-0 for their 11th straight win in Pittsburgh.
Travis Snider broke up the bid with an infield single off the pitchers mound
leading off the seventh inning. Second baseman Alexi Amarista dived to his right
but the ball glanced off his glove. Released earlier this season by Minnesota,
Marquis struck out four and walked one in his first shutout since April 29,
2011, for Washington against San Francisco, and fifth of his career.
Pedro Alvarez was the only other Pittsburgh player to reach base. He walked in
the second and singled in the eighth. “He was just pounding the strike zone with
his sinker,” San Diego third baseman Chase Headley said. “It was fun to watch.”
The Padres, who joined the National League in 1969 as an expansion team, are the
only major league franchise without a no-hitter. Johan Santana threw the first
one in New York Mets history on June 1 against St. Louis. “It goes to show you
how hard pitching a no-hitter really is,” San Diego manager Bud Black said.
Marquis (6-6), who threw his eighth career complete game, was released by the
Twins after going 2-4 with an 8.47 ERA in seven starts. San Diego signed the
13-year veteran as a free agent on May 29. Marquis has never thrown a no-hitter.
“Id love to have one, thats the goal every time you take the mound,” Marquis
said. “I gave it a pretty good shot but it didnt quite work out.” Marquis missed
the latter part of spring training and the beginning of the season while on the
bereavement list after his 7-year-old daughter, Reese Marquis, was severely
injured in a bicycle accident near their Long Island home. Reese has recovered
and Marquis is now pitching with a clear head. “I wasnt able to do the things I
needed to do to really be able to be ready to pitch at the start of the season
but I dont regret that because my family will always come first,” Marquis said.
“The Twins were great with letting me spend all the time I needed with my
family. I felt bad it didnt work out there but Im also thankful for this
opportunity. I enjoy playing with these guys.” San Diego won its sixth straight
game and sent Pittsburgh to its third consecutive loss. The Padres winning
streak in Pittsburgh began in 2009. Pirates manager Clint Hurdle managed Marquis
in Colorado for part of the 2009 season when he won 15 games and earned his only
All-Star Game selection. “It can be challlenging because you keep wanting to hit
him and you cant hit anything hard because of his sinker,” Hurdle said. Antonio Brown Youth Jersey. “We didnt square
many balls up.” Headley hit his third home run in the two games for the Padres
and Will Venable also went deep. Venable and Marquis each had two of San Diegos
10 hits. A.J. Burnett (14-4) failed in his bid to become the first Pirates
pitcher to win 15 games since Todd Ritchie in 1999 and also had his four-game
winning streak stopped. Burnett allowed five runs—four earned—and nine
hits in 5 2-3 innings with 10 strikeouts and two walks. It was Burnetts first
loss in eight home decisions and the Pirates had been 10-0 in his starts at PNC
Park. “We were fortunate to score as many runs as he did because Burnett was
really tough and his curveball was nasty,” Headley said. Snider left the game
after the seventh inning with right hamstring tightness after beating out an
infield hit. He said the injury was minor and he expects to play Sunday.
Headleys home run, his 18th, with two outs in the first inning opened the
scoring. He homered twice Friday night in San Diegos 9-8 win over Pittsburgh.
Everth Cabrera led off the third with a triple and scored on Yonder Alonsos
two-out single. In the fourth, first baseman Garrett Jones booted a grounder by
Venable for a two-base error and Cameron Maybin followed with an RBI single to
push the Padres lead to 3-0. Venable hit his seventh homer to lead off the sixth
and Headley drew a bases-loaded walk from Burnett with two outs to round out the
scoring. NOTES: San Diego placed RHP Huston Street, who has converted all 21
save opportunities this season, on the disabled list with a strained left calf
muscle and recalled RHP Cody Burns from Triple-A Tucson. Street was injured
while recording the final out in Friday nights game. ... Pittsburgh RHP
Kevin Correia will get a second spot start Tuesday night against the Los Angeles
Dodgers as manager Clint Hurdle wants to give his starting pitchers extra rest
during a stretch where his team is playing 20 games in 20 days. Correia, who was
moved to the bullpen from the starting rotation following the acquisition of LHP
Wandy Rodriguez from Houston in a July 24 trade with Houston, also started
Wednesday and beat Arizona. Correia has won his last seven decisions to improve
to 9-6. ... The crowd of 39,485 was the third-largest in PNC Parks 12-season
history with part of the lure being a postgame fireworks extravaganza and
concert by Styx. ... San Diego RHP Ross Ohlendorf (4-2, 5.61) will face
Pittsburgh LHP Erik Bedard (6-12, 4.53) on Sunday in the finale of the
three-game series. ’ ’ ’
